The Baadshah of Bollywood publicly declares his shyness over kissing scenes and accepts that the onlookers make him uncomfortable portraying such scenes. HTTabloid confronts him on the issue.
Recently, Hrithik and Ash set the screen on fire with their sizzling kiss scene in Dhoom 2. In a way, they have once again A-listed smooching. Be it Karisma Kapoor, Aamir Khan, Madhuri Dikshit, Juhi Chawla, or for that matter any leading superstar of the era, they all have tried it atleast once.
But there is still one actor in tinsel-town who has been avoiding this basic requirement of the industry and is still known for doling out the greatest number of romantic flicks. You might have already guessed that we are talking about Shahrukh 'King' Khan here.
Can you recollect even one recent kissing scene involving the star? I bet you won't be able to.
Does the star deliberately avoids such scene? Well, we pose the question directly to him, that has been pondering in the minds of his fans for quite a long time and pat comes the reply: "To be very honest I will never feel comfortable doing smooching scenes on screen. In fact, even simple kissing is quite embarrassing for me."
What is it that embarrasses the actor while kissing? Well, the onlookers that gather around to see the shoot seem to be the root cause, as the actor says: "I don't feel at ease while doing romantic scenes when people are around, be it onlookers or crew members."
"That's the major reason behind my resistence to do such scences in outdoor locations. I can never do a thing if I do not feel comfortable enough", the actor adds candidly.
Besides, the strong value system that he has acquired from his family members holds him back beyond a level.
King Khan's fans are keeping their fingers crossed as the star eagerly awaits hitting small screen with the legendry Kaun banega Crorepati. He rejects all rumours about his competition (read cold war) with Amitabh Bachchan and that he has been trying to step into his shoes oflate.
Says he, “There is no comparison between two of us. He is an institution in this field. I cannot even think of coming at par with him.”
